Free Pass to Freak Out
Life can be a crazy train. Throw in a pandemic, loss, grief, etc. and our ability to maintain a balanced state of mind can be tough. A great way to maintain realistic expectations of ourselves is by giving ourselves a free pass to freak out.
When we feel overwhelmed, like we’re wearing too many hats, or our hearts are aching…remind yourself that it’s ok to cry, yell in a pillow or go for a run. We all need a healthy, safe way to release when we’re feeling the tug of being overwhelmed.
The message of taking time out to breathe, release and recharge is us loving ourselves as well as sending a clear sign to those around us that we have boundaries and we will at times need personal release.
Check out this week’s episode for the reminder that you’re awesome!
